The Just the Applications Package


An effective college application provides admissions counselors with a holistic view of the student. We help the student use the application to strategically express the elements of their unique academic and life story. We will guide your student through the entire application, including the college essay, college-specific supplemental essays, the additional information section and the description of the student's activities.

This package is for the student who has a solid list of colleges and needs assistance creating a strong and convincing application. It is also appropriate for students who need assistance with organization and time management or who feel overwhelmed and stressed by prospect of the application process.
